BARRIER-FREE TRAVEL IN AUSTRIA
If the cards of fate have played against you and you have found yourself with physical limitations after an illness or perhaps after an accident, there is a way to keep the blues at bay; plan a holiday at one of Austria’s favourite holiday venues – the wonderfully friendly Landhotels. But let’s not forget that physical disabilities can mean a host of different things.
Many search for ‘wheelchair access’ to define a barrier-free hotel suitable for someone with a disability, but we also have hotels suitably equipped for people with visual impairments, hearing disabilities or other handicaps. Barrier-free travel in Austria includes the needs of older holiday-makers when the signs of age have begun to limit their physical abilities. Some of our Landhotels are specially equipped to cater for people with physical disabilities and these can easily be found on landhotels.at.
ACCESSIBILITY AND QUALITY
Upon your arrival and warm welcome, you will be invited to settle in to your comfortable room – barrier-free, naturally. But we have thought beyond your room, and ensured that guests also have barrier-free access to the restaurant where you can spend the evening savouring delicious Austrian cuisine. After a restful night’s sleep, holiday-makers can enjoy a hearty breakfast to set themselves up for wherever their excursion will take them that day.
It goes without saying that bathrooms in barrier-free hotels are fully equipped to ensure that people with physical disabilities have all they need. There is plenty of room for a wheelchair and all bathroom furniture is ergonomically adapted. Barrier-free travel in Austria means full and easy access to your room, the restaurant, the bar, the toilets, the carpark, the sunny terrace outside or balcony (sometimes via a wheelchair-friendly lift). Holiday-makers can therefore begin their holiday with a smile because, at Landhotels, being disabled does not prevent you from spending a wonderful holiday in Austria. Tours can begin from right outside the front door.
Countless leisure activity options are available to suit all abilities. Families with young children and physically disabled guests enjoy the fact that Austrian Landhotels are surrounded by buggy and wheelchair friendly paths. This opens up a world of stunning mountain and lake vistas, while the scent of meadow flowers and woodland can be savoured. Though, with a disability such as a prosthetic leg, it is of course possible to tackle more physically challenging hikes and routes. After all, the Paralympics champion Heinrich Popow proved in ‘Let's Dance 2017’ that a physical disability no longer needs to prevent you from physical endeavour.
The hospitable hosts at Landhotels Austria are always happy to advise you of the varied options available to those with disabilities of any sort.
Your Landhotel hosts are constantly striving to improve barrier-free provision for guests with disabilities. You can currently choose from four suitably equipped Landhotels in three of the prettiest Austrian states.
For example, you may like to stay at Landhotel Traunstein im Lammertal. This was the first hotel in the world to receive the official TÜV award for ‘Barrier-Free Tourism’.
No less suitable is Landhotel Post im Salzkammergut. The whole hotel is designed to be barrier-free and numerous varied wheelchair friendly paths lead straight from the hotel’s front door.
At Landhotel Birkenhof am Neusiedler See guests can enjoy, alongside warm Burgenland hospitality, numerous fully wheelchair friendly comfort rooms.
And also the Landhotel Stockerwirt in the Pyhrn-Priel region in Upper Austria can serve with a barrier-free room on the first floor. Please inquire when booking whether the hotel meets your needs, because the house is not entirely wheelchair accessible due to individual steps, for example in the restaurant!
Thanks to landhotels.at, holiday-makers can find fabulous barrier-free hotels, suitable for them, in just a few clicks of the mouse. Landhotels wish you a wonderfully relaxing and fun holiday.
